What are the symptoms for a brain tumor or spinal meningitis? My head is numb, feels like it will explode at times, and sometimes I have problems with focusing my eyes. Any correlation? I recently had a hospital visit because my esophagus was causing chest pains. This was going on for about 2 weeks. I was given medication to numb my esophagus and I’m taking Pepcid AC. I’m taking that along with Mucenix for a Cold. Thanks. Richard

Hello -

Wife is 65 years old and suffers from extreme constipation. She receives excellent medical care, UNC & Duke graduates, but neither her primary physician or her plethora of specialists seem to be able to offer practical suggestions.

Situation resulted from surgery in 2001 four “flat back” syndrome secondary to scoliosis. Nerve damage occurred during surgery with many negative outcomes, such as, chronic pain, bladder and bowel dysfunction, some paralysis in right leg.

She manages well, in spite of, these difficulties and prior to surgery was high functioning in very responsible position.

She takes heavy narcotics for pain which, of course, contributes to her problem. Also, she takes Miralax and copious fluids.

Bowel movements are unpredictable and can take hours to complete. This part of her disability severely constricts her quality of life.

Are there any suggestions, short of a colostomy, which might alleviate her symptoms of constipation, as well as, relieving the constipation itself.

I understand this is a complicated medical situation, but I am interested only in the bowel management issues.

Any suggestions? Any recommendations? Any solutions?

Thanks very much for your time and attention to this problem.

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? There was a concern that my 10 year old might have periodic paralysis, about 1 1/2 years ago. It has not been confirmed. This morning he woke up with his head moving from side to side for less than 30 seconds and his legs from knees down shaking. Never happened before. Is that a symptom? Previous symptoms was loss of muslce control in legs.

I am being watched for an enlarged ascending aorta . This was caused by years with a bicuspid aorta valve (which has since been replaced). I have recently developed sleep numbness in my fingers. Could it be related to the ascending aorta?
